Marvin Jones projects as the Bengals No. 2 receiver this season.
Under Jay Gruden's rotational tactics, Jones shared snaps with underwhelming Mohamed Sanu far too often last season. He still ripped off a 51-712-10 line while flashing explosive downfield playmaking ability. New offensive coordinator Hue Jackson figures to lean toward the run game more, but he's also a savvy talent evaluator. Jones is a good bet to push for an every-down role. Mar 31 - 12:33 PM

Marvin Jones played on 63-of-81 snaps (77.7 percent) in the Wild Card loss to the Chargers.

It speaks volumes that in the biggest game of the year, Jones set a season-high for percentage of snaps played. We saw it coming as over the final quarter of the year, the Bengals coaches finally recognized him as a superior playmaker to Mohamed Sanu. During the final four games, he played on 211-of-306 snaps (68.9 percent) and posted 24 catches for 324 yards with two touchdowns. With this kind of usage and Jones' explosive skill set, he'll take a major up arrow into 2014.
Jan 8 - 9:28 AM

Marvin Jones caught eight balls for 130 yards in the Bengals' Wild Card round loss to San Diego.

Jones turned in a second-quarter big play, Willie Maysing an Andy Dalton bomb deep down the left sideline for a 49-yard connection in Richard Marshall's coverage. Jones had a game-high 130 yards, seeing his playoff snaps rise after he was underutilized all regular season. Perhaps it's a sign of things to come. Jones is clearly a superior option to 2013 rotational partner Mohamed Sanu, both as a receiver and blocker. Turning 24 in March, Jones could flirt with WR2 value in 2014 with an expanded role. He is a valuable Dynasty league commodity.
Jan 5 - 4:27 PM

Marvin Jones caught five passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens.

Jones continued to run as the clear-cut No. 2 receiver opposite A.J. Green and drew seven targets compared to Mohamed Sanu's two. On his 16-yard touchdown catch, Jones beat Lardarius Webb up the middle of the field and leaped to make a one-handed catch in the end zone. His sophomore season ends with 51 catches for 712 yards and ten touchdowns. Jones should continue to serve as the No. 2 receiver and second or third option in the passing game throughout the playoffs.

Marvin Jones played on 55-of-83 snaps (66.2 percent) in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Even though the Bengals were up 28-7 at halftime, Jones' snap count remained relatively high. It's a great sign for his expected value in Week 17 and into 2014. Note that over the last two weeks, Jones is playing on 68.8 percent of the snaps while in the three weeks before that, he was at 38.6. He hasn't completely put his foot on the throat of Mohamed Sanu, but the coaches are clearly seeing his playmaking ability. Jones has nine touchdowns on just 46 catches this season.

Marvin Jones racked up six catches for 85 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

He added two rushing attempts for six yards. We'd like to see Jones play in a full-time role -- he's easily a better option than Mohamed Sanu -- but Bengals OC Jay Gruden doesn't seem to have any interest in that. The playoff-bound Bengals close out their 2013 regular season against the Ravens in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Marvin Jones played on a season-high 71.8 percent of the snaps in the Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Jones' snap count was buoyed by game flow as the Bengals fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter and were subsequently in catch-up mode all night. Still, the usage is an encouraging sign that the coaches see the playmaking second-year man as a priority when they need points quickly. Jones, who has a touchdown in two straight games, has dream matchup at home against the Vikings' No. 30 pass defense. Few WR4s will have more upside.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 08:18:00 AM

Marvin Jones had five catches for 48 yards and one touchdown in Sunday night's Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Jones finished behind only A.J. Green with nine targets and scored on a wide open 13-yard pass from Andy Dalton on a fourth-and-five play late in the game. He made a number of athletic plays, including a nine-yard catch where he reversed the field in the third quarter. Jones has managed touchdowns in back-to-back weeks, but will remain just a WR4 in Week 16 against the Vikings.

Marvin Jones (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

We don't have many details on Jones' injury, but it doesn't appear to be a concern for his Week 15 status. Jones will be a touchdown-dependent WR4 against the Steelers.

Marvin Jones (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jones originally hurt his shoulder in Week 7. He hasn't been on the injury report for the better part of a month, so it's possible he suffered a setback last week. Jones is nothing more than a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 04:13:00 PM

Marvin Jones caught three passes for 60 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Colts.

Jones drew four targets in the passing game. It was his best game since his four-touchdown Week 8 against the Jets. Jones' big play was a 29-yard, diving touchdown in the first quarter to kick off the scoring in this one. He ran right by Vontae Davis and laid out for a beautifully thrown Andy Dalton pass. Jones isn't anything more than a boom-or-bust WR5 in fantasy.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 06:56:00 PM

Marvin Jones caught two passes for 12 yards on three targets in Cincinnati's Week 13 win over the Chargers.

Jones' third target came in the end zone, but Andy Dalton threw a terrible ball on what could have easily been a touchdown. As it is, Jones now has just eight catches for 89 yards and zero touchdowns in four games since exploding for four scores in Week 8. On pace for a middling 43/611/9 line, Jones can be left on waiver wires for the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 08:29:00 PM

OC Jay Gruden reiterated that he's not sold on any of his No. 2 wideouts opposite A.J. Green.

Far too many fantasy owners jumped the gun following Marvin Jones' 8/122/4 line from Week 8. In three games since then, he's totaled six catches for 77 yards with no touchdowns while playing limited snaps. Mohamed Sanu is also struggling to make an impact and Andrew Hawkins is only trusted for limited slot reps. It's a value-crushing committee approach. "They’ve all shown flashes of being very good," Gruden said. "It's just we have a lot of guys that are kind of in that mode where a different guy can help us each week, that it might not be the same guy each week."

Marvin Jones played on just 20 snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

The fluky 8/122/4 line Jones put up in Week 8 has not earned him a significant boost in role. In the three games since that outburst, he's totaled six catches for 77 yards with no touchdowns. Jones continues to share time in two-wide sets with Mohamed Sanu and won't be anything more than a WR4 when the Bengals come out of their bye.
Mon, Nov 18, 2013 10:43:00 AM

Marvin Jones was held to one catch for nine yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Browns.

Jones had just two targets and barely saw the field in the second half. Since going off for 122 yards and four touchdowns in Week 8, he has a total of six catches for 77 yards over his last three games. Jones will remain nothing more than a boom-or-bust WR4 when the Bengals come out of their bye in Week 12.
